    And you guys pronounce “Nestles” phonetically.
    It’s Nest-lees here.
    I purchased a Crunch bar when I was there and our liaison mentioned that she like Nestles (phonetically pronounced) and I was confused for a min.
    Ask TALON about trying to purchase a bag of ice here one afternoon. I still laugh!

    Color - the lighter purple is closer to what I’m envisioning.

    The bed is done - unless my first test run shows that either the wheel area needs clearance and/or the shock shows me the same thing.

    Rolled in a radius along all the free edges of the panels to stiffen things up. It's surprising what a little lip does.



    Got the middle rear panel clearanced so the spare doesn't ride on it.





    I've knocked out the bumpy spots a bit and will get after them a bit more before the panels go off to Line-X for coating.

    I've decided that I'll get them covered in the stuff - should make for some sound damping and will also make the panels darned near bulletproof.

    Being that I didn't (know to do it before folding) get any sort of features rolled into them the Line-X will cover up my missing features.

    Finished up the rear of the bed sides too by closing in the back side by the tail lights. This worked out better than I was expecting.





    I did get a ride in last weekend with two guys who are a decade younger than I and like riding stuff that's a bit more challenging than I prefer...

    Gassed during the ride - kept taking the wrong line, falling over due to short legs and large rocks.
    I bailed from the ride not long after this and went back to the truck with my tail between my legs. No crashes, but man oh man, that ride wore my ass out!

    This was Thomas going down one of the "easy" spots... Actually it's not quite as bad as it seems, just tight and definitely a one way trip.



    Here, let's go down this trail, said Thomas. I should have bailed here.



    I made it down that section fairly well. It wasn't until they tossed in a few step ups that I started getting beat.



    Got caught between/by a couple beach ball sized rocks after this step up.



    Short legged and tired I decided it was easier to sit down on the prickly pear cactus that was hiding by one of the rocks.

    After standing back up (pretty quickly), trying to throw a short, very tired leg back over the saddle and missing the bike decided that I'd have more fun laying back on the prickly pear and then pinning me to the ground. I got it off of me but not before filling my left arm and back with pokeys.

    Well, looks like you are getting the bead roller all broken in for me! Looking good!


    Don't worry, soon enough I will be the one dropping the bike and finding all the prickly pear massage studios...

    Took to the bead roller very quickly.

    Edit. Glad you pulled the pin. I'm proud of you.
